That Late Night Life.

by katelin on September 4, 2018

I took this picture last night (this morning, really) because I needed to laugh.

I had so much work to do and despite not really sleeping during the day, Rhys was up again. And he was so giggly and smiley and cute and sweet mercy it almost made me forget that he was wide awake at midnight.

I told Matt to go to sleep and I stayed up with him since I had work to do and I have the boobs.

Eventually I got him down.

And then he was up again.

And down again.

And up again.

And in the midst of all of this, I had work to do. I have two clients and I’m working my ass off to stay ahead and not always playing catch up.

And then I took this picture.Untitled

It was two in the morning, Rhys was up again, I had Queer Eye on in the background and still at least an hour worth of work to do. I snuggled him and rocked him and was about to start googling “voodoo witchcraft to make my baby sleep” when he fell asleep in my arms.

I got him down again and basically just prayed he’d stay asleep.

And then I laughed.

Because I knew that Riley would be awake in about four hours.

And last night was just peak Mom Life/Work At Home Mom Life. So many hashtags and acronyms sum up last night. It’ll be one of those nights that I look back on years down the road and remember how much I worked my butt off to be a good mom and a good wife and my kids may not get it, but they’ll benefit from it.

This isn’t easy. Working for yourself and raising tiny humans and being a present wife and eventually sleeping. It’s not easy at all. But I’m trying. And I’ve got a good village and a supportive husband and crazy kids.

And I’m laughing when I can. Because honestly, what else can I do? (Besides drinking gallons of coffee, because that’s definitely going to be on my agenda today, ha).



happy tuesday!
